No Bites Yet

This is a redwood bridge my dad built across the little bitty creek that sometimes flows through our property. Underneath used to be a decent-size stream with bream and little catfish, frogs, turtles, and the occasional snake. I spent many, many hours playing on its banks and knew it like the back of my hand.

Ever since the catfish pond upstream dried up, water only flows now when there’s significant rain. However, the ceramic fisherman doesn’t give up.

  1. This is an awesome story! My dad gave me a CD on thursday with scans of everything in his scrapbook, including a log bridge he built when he was a boy scout. It’s not as fancy as your dad’s bridge, but he didn’t use a single nail. The entire thing is lashed together with ropes. Apparently, it was so cool that they had a picture and an article in the newspaper about it.
